There is a strong correlation between stress and comfort eating, therefore, the techniques used in hypnotherapy at Healing Voice can be a powerful intervention in dealing with this fundamental cause. On a deeper level, historical trauma suffered by individuals, often leads to far more serious eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Complex relationships develop between sufferers and their food, where eating or not, becomes a coping mechanism to deal with the emotional deep-rooted stress that they are experiencing.
Hypnotherapy has been proven to effectively treat the trauma and or stress, that as mentioned above, can be the root cause for all eating disorders. Using the power of suggestion, hypnotherapy can change habits and thought patterns that lead to negative relationships with food. In conjunction NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) hypnotherapy, can help clients to recall emotional coping mechanisms, prior to their illness, and therefore, eliminate their reliance on food as a solution. Positive suggestions during hypnosis, also plays a pivotal role in helping sufferers of food disorders with body dysmorphia (distorted self-image perception ). Once clients learn to love themselves and their bodies, their relationships with food, can be massively improved.
